Season's Greetings!

Hey Stampers! Happy Wednesday.  It's Project Bin day!  I am using the stamp set North Pole for my card today! 

My card today is a 4-bar card.  It measures 3 1/2 x 5. All the paper and card stock is from stash (working really hard on using my stash).  So my card base is an ivory card stock.  I used pattern paper from an old collection from Recollections (which is the Michael's brand).  The silver glitter is from Pretty Papers from Queen & Co.  I cut the glitter piece 3 1/4 x 4 3/4, this paper is self adhesive so I removed the release paper and attached the paper to the light blue patterned paper.  I stamped the sentiment "Season's Greetings" from the North Pole set inSimon Says Stamp clear ink  and used silver embossing powder which of course I heat set.  The snowflakes on the sentiment piece are from a snowflake from the same set.  Now its the snowflake at the top of one of the other sentiments from the set but I carefully cut it away so I could use it create my background.  To create my snowflake embellishment I used the snowflake from the Pinpoint Snowflake Circle Frame from Memory Box.  I cut one snowflake from the glitter paper and one from the same blue that I used to stamp the sentiment.  I adhered them together with liquid glue.  I offset them just a bit before the glue could dry and then I glued it to the corner.  I put a clear crystal in the center of the piece.  To add some extra sparkle (cause the glitter paper wasn't enough) I added a small clear crystal to the center of three of the snowflakes in my background.  The sparkle on this card is ridiculous but I am so happy with how this turned out. For one final finishing touch (and to cover a mistake that was making me crazy) I added some white ribbon that is silver edged to the bottom of the card. 

I hope you will check out the North Pole stamp set and all the other amazing sets available at The Project Bin.  This is all I have for you today, thank you for stopping by.

Birthday Celebration

Hey Stampers!  Its Thursday and guess what else?  IT'S MY BIRTHDAY!  So knowing my post would be on  my birthday I had to make a birthday card!  I used Penguin Celebrations and the happy birthday SVG file.  So a little background, my favorite color is green, just in case you couldn't tell with card.

To start I printed this happy girl on Ultra Smooth card stock from Crafter's Companion.  I colored everything with Copic markers.  For my penguin I used the following
for her body C9, C7, C5, and C3.  For her belly and face I used C1, C00, and 0.  Her beak is YR16.  The necklace and skirt are G09 for the necklace, the skirt I used G07, G14, and G12.

The confetti I just grabbed bright colors and to be honest I didn't keep track.  The card base is a lime green from my stash and my card is 6x6.  The pattern paper is from Pink and Main and it is called Celebration.  I used some silver glitter paper from my stash to create the border on the image piece.  I used clear Sparkle pen on the skirt, necklace, and confetti.  For the sentiment I cut 4 copies of "happy birthday" from white card stock using my Silhouette Portrait.  I layered them all together using liquid glue.  For the top layer that is all glittering, I used a green sheet of glitter paper that I got from Queen and Co called Pretty Papers.  This is non shed glitter paper that has adhesive on the back.  Now I will say this, this very light weight paper so to make sure it would cut in my Portrait, I trimmed out a piece of the green glitter paper and attached it to a piece of white card stock.  I sent it through my Portrait to cut it out.  I added this to the top of my already glued together "happy birthday's".  Once it was dry, I attached it to the front of my card and that completed my card.   I love layering the sentiments like this because it gives dimension to the card.

Before I go, I want to invite everyone enter a project for our Anything Goes Challenge on our challenge blog.  Entries are accepted until 11/28/18 and winners are announced when the new challenge starts on December 1st.  Did you know that Heartcraft Paper has a fan group, join our Facebook group for inspiration and sneak peeks.

Eat PIe!

Hey Stampers!  Happy Wednesday!  Today is Project Bin Day.  Today's card features the set Eat Pie.

My card is a top folding A2 size card.  The base is made from Sweet Mango card stock from Gina K Designs.  My patterned paper is from  Echo Park called the Story of Fall  and I used my Blueprints 22 Dienamcis from MFT.  I can't link it because it is retired now =(

The ribbon is from my stash and I used some orange Glossy Dots from Pink and Main.  I stamped the sentiment "eat pie & give thanks" in Early Expresso ink from Stampin UP! Once the ink was dry (cause my ink pad was really juicy) I took the image of a pie from the same set and stamped it three times over the sentiment this time using Pumpkin Pie ink also from Stampin UP! My sentiment is stamped on a piece ivory card stock from my stash and I did a mat for this piece with the Sweet Mango.  For a final finishing touch, I took my clear Spectrum Noir Sparkle pen and colored in the whipped topping on the pie. 

I hope you will check out The Project Bin for this set and all the other wonderful sets that Denise offers.  This is all I have for you today.  Thank you for stopping by.

Ho Ho Ho!

Hey Stampers. happy Monday.  Starting the week with a card featuring products from the Fully Loaded November kit from Creative Escape Papercrafting. This is my third month Guest Designing for CEP and these kits do not disappoint. You get a little bit of everything card stock, glitter card, mirror card stock, ribbon, twine, sequin mix, Copic safe card stock for coloring and stamping. I am linking to the CEP website but not the kit because unfortunately it has already sold out. CEP does offer a subscription service so you can make sure you get the kits.  But I want to give inspiration to those that have the kit.

So on to the card. I used  1/2 of the red card stock that comes in the kit. I made an A2 card base. I used the snowflake die from the Memory Box Pinpoint Snowflake Circle Frame set. I cut three snowflakes in the front of the card front. I used a panel of the white glitter card and adhered it so it shows through the snowflakes. The tag is part of the assorted tags from the Pebbles Cozy and Bright collection. I trimmed the tag, punched a hole and threaded some of the red and white bakers twine.  I used some of my Scotch foam tape to pop it up on the card.   I used the small snowflake image from the Oh What Fun stamp set that comes in the kit.  ,this set is by Lawn Fawn, to create a snowflake background using Versmark ink. I stamped Merry Christmas in black in the lower right corner. I took three red sequins from the Prancer mix and adhered them on the tag and then I tried something that I have seen others do and that is fill the sequins with glossy accents. I love the way it looks and I know it will stay put.

I am extremely happy with how this card turned out. I hope you will visit the Creative Escape Papercrafting website and check out all the amazing goodies they have to offer in addition to their kits. Creative Escape Papercrafting also has a fan Facebook page.  Please join us for inspiration and sneak peeks.

Hey Stampers!  Today is a two for one bonus!  I also have a card for the new card challenge over at Southern Gals Challenge blog.  This week's challenge is called "Stuck on YOU!" We are encouraging everyone to use a sticker(s) on their cards.  I used supplies from the Fully Loaded Kit for October from Creative Escape Papercrafting.  I used a A2 card base, the pattern paper is from Carte Bella's Haunted House 6x6 pad, the sticker sheet is from the Echo Park Bewitched collection.  My sentiment says Bubble-Bubble, Toil & Trouble, Fire Burn and Cauldron Bubble.  I used one of the witch stickers and a couple of the banner stickers.  On the inside I used another sticker that says "Ghosts & Goblins Spook Galore, Witches knocking at your door, Jack-o-Lanterns shining bright, Wishing you a Haunting Night.  I used some glossy dots from Pink & Main to add some more interest.  So that is my card for today.  I hope you pop over to

Merry Kisses


Hey Stampers!  Happy Thursday and welcome to another release from Heartcraft Paper.   Once again Monica has knocked it out of the park with the new images.

I am using the Merry Kisses image for my card today. I used the small penguin blowing kisses and the sentiment. This is why I have come to love digital images I took this image and altered it to what I wanted for this project. I rotated him so he had a mirror image and printed it on Ultra Smooth White card stock from Crafters Companion. I decided to copy my fellow DT member Tania and use non traditional Christmas colors.  My card base is a top folding A2 made from 110# cardstock. It is from a Value pack by Recollections called Ocean. I colored my penguins using My Copic markers.  Here are the colors I used. Penguins C9, C7, C5, C3 belly is C1 and C0.  Hats BG13, BG23, BG34 band of the hat is BG10 and BG11 Beak and Feet YR16.  Hearts are R37.

Now I wanted to make a shaker card but I wanted a “window” so I used a circle die from my set from Kat Scrappiness and cut into the front of the card base.  I used another die from to create a frame for the circle, using some self adhesive glitter paper that I picked up from Queen & Co called Pretty Papers.  On the inside of the card, I arranged and adhered my penguins so they showed in my window the way I wanted.  I then used one of my clear card sleeves to create my pocket for my shaker bits.  The shaker bits I used are some new ones from Queen & Co called Jelly Gems. When making my pocket, I made sure to double check my adhesive application because I didn't want anything to show in the window.



Once I had the pocket adhered, I added my sentiment "wishing you" that I printed on the computer and fishtailed the ends.  I framed it with the silver glitter paper which by the way GLEAMS in real life.  To finish the front I used my Aquatic Mist to create dots of glittery color.

On the inside, I grounded my penguins with a half circle of the glitter paper.  I used glitter pen on the Santa hats and adhered all the little hearts.  The sentiment "Merry Kisses" comes with the image.

So because we have a new release that means we also have a new challenge up on the blog. Which is an Anything Goes.  Also because it is release day, we are also doing a blog hop, so if you are following along you arrived here from Tina's blog and if you want to continue on the blog hop, your next stop is Amanda.  If you start from the beginning here is the order.

Haunt It

Hey Stampers!  Happy Wednesday and Happy Halloween.  I have one final Halloween card for the season.   Today's card features a sentiment from the Haunt It set and the small ghosts from Cool Ghoul.  The sentiment says "if you've got it, Haunt It". So I built my card around the sentiment.  I used a top folding A2 size card in light gray.  My frame piece is Blackberry Bliss.  I stamped the sentiment in the same color and cut it out with an oval die from stash.  The house I used comes from the very first dynamics I ever bought from MFT, but it is retired the set was called Spooky House.  I used the black paper from a set that bought from Queen & Co. called Pretty Papers.  The paper just gleams in real life.  It is self-adhesive paper so I attached a piece to black card stock and cut out my house.  The pack also comes with a gold piece of glitter paper so I backed the windows and the door with the piece.  The ghosts were stamped on the silver piece from the pack and  I cut them out.  The fence also came in the same set as the house and I used plain black card stock from stash to cut it out..  For some finishing touches I used Chocolate Fondue Nuvo Glitter Drops.  They are dark enough that it blends beautifully with the card stock.  The inside I stamped "Happy Halloween".  Sad to have this be the last Halloween card already but now I can make lots of Fall and Christmas cards.

I hope you stop by The Project Bin and check out these two stamps sets as well as the wonderful sets Denise has to offer.  Thank you for stopping by today.
